Is it possible to make snap applications work?

I installed snap on my Librem 13
I installed few snap apps
the slack app works
all the others do not.

Is there a way to make them work?

I would see if you can find Flatpak alternatives for the apps you want. Snaps are more of a Ubuntu/Canonical project from what I can tell, where as Flatpak is getting more support from Purism/GNOME.

Both ‘snap’ (the client) and ‘snapd’ (the daemon) are available from the PureOS repositories. You can get snaps from the Canonical run “Snap Store”; “Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store”.

Please note that Purism does not plan to create any snaps at this time and the official location of snaps is limited to Canonical controlled servers. The Purism preference is to use a combination of Debian packages and flatpak to create containerized applications which are very like snaps but are also free software and curated to the standards of PureOS.
